My conclusion from that (admittedly based on limited understanding)
would be that everything Boris is proposing makes sense to copy from
Nova to oslo-incubator so Cinder can re-use it, with the exception of
the DB archiving strategy.

i.e. we'd improve Nova's DB archiving strategy before having Cinder
adopt it.
